This pathway enables candidates to pursue coursework for a Master’s degree in conjunction with a teaching credential. The multiple subjects teaching credential is generally considered to be an elementary school credential, most applicable to kindergarten and grades 1 through 6, where traditionally one classroom teacher is responsible for multiple subjects in the curriculum. Single subject credential candidates may teach a single subject, specified on the credential, from preschool through grade 12. This credential is generally recognized as most appropriate for the middle and secondary schools, grades 7 through 12.
This pathway enables candidates to pursue a study of human development and issues in social psychology, cognition, instruction, and assessment.
This pathway enables candidates to pursue a study of literacy development and clinical diagnosis of reading difficulties. It is particularly appropriate for educators in the field of literacy as a content area.
This pathway enables candidates to pursue a study of complex reasoning and the application of advanced technologies. It is particularly appropriate for educators in the fields of science, technology, and mathematics as content areas.
This 30-unit program pathway, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), is designed to support educators seeking to teach English as an additional language to students from kindergarten to the university level, both in the USA and beyond.
Students enrolled in the TESOL pathway will extend and deepen their professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions as reflective scholar-practitioners. The program is designed for: a) local candidates intending to specialize in teaching English Learners; and b) international candidates wishing to study the teaching of English. The program is offered as one-year cohort model, which offers a collegiate, tightly-knit, team environment for students to participate in shared learning, and professional network building.
All classes are aligned with the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Standards for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages programs (2008).
The TESOL pathway is currently offered during the fall term at the Irvine Graduate Campus only.
